Great for Backcountry
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
I wore these for my Avy class all weekend and they were perfect. They are more like a softshell, but I never had an issue with being cold and they kept me completely dry all day even when it barfed snow on us all day. I am local to a backcountry warehouse so I went and tried on a ton of their bib inventory (at least 10 pairs) and these came out on top. They have the boot flare and skinny leg so you don't feel frumpy and also are never struggling to get the pant leg to go over your boot. Only complaint and suggestion for a future model would be to have the sides go up a little more.
For reference, I'm 5'8 and weigh 140-145 lbs. The small fits me perfectly, besides the fact that I am probably borderline too tall for them so if you are taller than me I would go up a size. Overall (see what I did there), very happy with these and they're my go-to snowpant now. Worth the money.
